  Welcome to our lab website!

  • QUIZ TWO will be May 2 and 3.  The study guide is now available. You can get it <HERE>

  • ALL MISSING OR LATE WORK MUST BE TURNED IN BY 4:30 PM on Thursday, May 3 in the lab room.  No work will be accepted after this date!


  • The ALTERNATIVE FILM assignment is HERE and is due 4/11 & 4/12
    • Most of the links you can see are not active yet.  This is not a bug, but on purpose.
    • This year the weather and climate labs will be in a state of experimentation.  We are actively trying to improve our labs by introducing new and innovative ways to help you learn the important concepts of meteorology.  Please understand that some things may differ from your lab manual and that we will often be working in a more freestyle manner while employing innovative and analytical solutions to real world problems.  It's going to be a bumpy ride at times, but I think it will be worth the trip!
    • Please be sure to purchase your own personal copy of the Weather and Climate Lab Manual in the Salem State Bookstore
    • Despite the rumors and misinformation that you may hear, Weather and Climate Lab does meet during the first week!  Please attend or you will be marked as absent.
